New School Year Changes for Track 4

We are very excited for our track 4 students first day of school on Monday, July 28th. Track 4 students and parents please read the following announcement for your first day of school:
  • Our school day is now from 8:15 – 3:00.
  • All school doors will remain locked until 7:45.  Parents, please do not drop your child off before 7:45 as there will not be anyone ready to supervise students prior to 7:45.
  • Unless given special permission by the front office, all students should be dropped off in the carpool lane, which is behind the building (turn right when entering from Durant Road).  No parents should pull down to the front office to drop off students unless it is after 8:15, at which point, your student is tardy.
  • At 7:45, students may start to enter school through the carpool doors or the bus lot doors.  Once inside, all  7th and 8th grade track 4 students are to report directly to homeroom.  All 6th grade track 4 students should report to the gym to meet your homeroom teacher.
  • If you want to eat breakfast, you may go to the cafeteria.  If you bring food with you for breakfast, you must eat that in the cafeteria before reporting on team.
